It has been a while since this blog has been updated, and I must apologize for this. I will not dwell on the reasons, though there are indeed some.
On everyone's favourite forum, there was a thread that I really appreciated. -> Signs of Allah (SWT)
It is amazing to me that nature in all its forms can be the cause of a person turning to Allah and unfortunately turning away from Him as well.
A Muslim who would have visited the Galapagos Island in Darwin's stead would have had a completely different view of things. The Muslim would see the different finches, the flightless cormorant, the marine iguana and realize the Greatness of Allah Ta'aala's power. He would realize that wherever there is a creation of Allah, there is the provision for it as well as the right tool to procure it, even in such an inhabitable place like the island.
A Muslim who watches birds will look in awe when he realizes that Allah gifted every bird a certain beak which is perfect for the kind of food it eats. Take fishing birds for example. There are about 7 different types of beaks a bird that fishes can have, yet you will not see a pelican with a kingfisher's beak and vice versa. You will not see the beak of a flamingo on an avocet. And so on.
How is it that certain animals who eat poisonous leaves will know exactly what sort of clay will counter that poison? How is it certain monkeys know that the leaves of a certain plant will keep the insects from biting them? How is it that certain animals will know exactly where to go to lay their eggs when they have only been there for a few short moments after their birth?
How is it that a baby will instantly recognize its own mother without having seen her?
It is all from Allah Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala.
